Shaw Millennium Park

Shaw Millennium Park (SMP) is North America's largest free outdoor skatepark and is located in easily accessible downtown Calgary.

In response to citizen feedback, Shaw Millennium Park will continue to remain open 24 hours. The park’s hours of operation were recently reviewed to determine whether they continued to meet community needs 15 years after the park first opened.

While user counts concluded that the park is used by only a handful of people after midnight, public engagement indicated that citizens liked the option of being able to use the park at any time of day or night.

Please note that the green space around the park will continue to operate under regional park hours. Skate park users must keep to the skate surface between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.
